You never really know where you'll end up once you begin listening to EMA's Past Life Martyred Saints
. Her opening track "Gray Ships", strolls along with a lounge-luster vibe that slides into alternative rock, eventually settling somewhere in between the two. The 9-track album that follows is a constant lo-fi fusion of over-driven guitars, dissonance, distorted vocals, synthesizers, and drum machines that will keep you guessing where you're going. The best part about Past Life Martyred Saints
is that you're liable to guess wrong every time—it consistently dodges expectations by miles.
